2007 La Crema Russian River Chardonnay was just released. As usual, this is a great value wine but found the 07 a little restrained compared to the 06. Probably needs a little more time. C: light golden in colour A: butterscotch, vanilla and pineapple T: Rich, light acidty, caramel, long finish

Very nice chardonnay. Nice rich, buttery, not too oaky. I did not find the Russian RIver to be any much more special that the two other Le Crema Chards (which cost $7 - $10 less).

    Rating: 93/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Here is a deep, decidedly complex look at the grape that begs for a bit of patience insofar as, while very rich and leading with plenty appley fruit and creamy oak, it seems a wine of hidden talent and reveals a bit more with each successive sniff and sip. Fairly full on the palate, slightly oily in feel yet never heavy and always well-balanced, it is light on its feet without being a light wine, and it should prove first-rate partner to the likes of seared scallops or sole in buerre blanc.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

    There are 6,200 cases of the 2007 Chardonnay Russian River. It exhibits plenty of tropical fruit and honeysuckle along with a touch of spice, full-bodied, rich flavors, and a subtle note of oak. This wine was 100% barrel-fermented and was put through 100% malolactic fermentation, but the oak is kept in the background. This Chardonnay / Pinot Noir specialist should receive rave notices from bargain hunters looking for a top-flight Chardonnay that is complex, rich, and widely available.

    The 2006 Chardonnay Russian River is a beauty. Tropical fruit notes of pineapple and a hint of white peach in a restrained yet powerful style are followed by a palate that has gorgeous precision, purity, and ripeness. It is elegant, subtle, yet substantial. Drink it over the next 1-2 years.

    Complex, with rich, subtle yellow apple and yellow pear flavors that are spicy, ending with a touch of herb and cedar. Drink now.


    Winemaker's Notes:

    "Our goal is to truly convey the Russian River terroir. This wine offers aromas of fresh pear, butterscotch and hazelnut with appealing hints of vanilla and spice. Juicy flavors of yellow apple, honeysuckle and lemon butter lead to a rich, toasty finish." - Melissa Stackhouse, La Crema Winemaker
